Residents sleep in four-person and six-person bedrooms. Each bunk comes with underbed storage bins, your own half-height closet space, and additional suitcase storage. All upper bunks have a bedside-table space.We use the main living often for movies and shows, but it is also a calm place to hang out and have a relaxed conversation. We also have musical instruments residents can borrow, since many residents find it difficult to travel with instruments but miss them.

This place is great. Everyone is very nice, and everything is perfectly managed. The house is very comfortable and very well kept. The location is also great ! Litterally 2 minutes away from the main street. Don't hesitate !

An excellent Airbnb experience. Perfect location within Silicon Valley. Close to shops and the Caltrain. Katy and the RA's are very welcoming with a wealth of knowledge about the area. The house is very comfortable to live in with a big kitchen and large recreational area - met a lot of smart friendly people in this space. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. AAA+

Radio Eden is a very hip place to stay. The people are consistently friendly, Katy and Eric are charming and polite and very good hosts. Great way to meet interesting people and get to know Mountain View.

Katy's Radio Eden is a real Eden which located not so far from the mountain view's commercial area. Mountain view is a peaceful place just like a calm lake and Radio Eden is a cozy boat floating on the lake. I wish I can come back again in the future.

This was such a great experience, although I was only there for a night everyone was extremely welcoming, friendly and above all impressively intelligent. They were all driven and working in the tech sector, and it was a great way to get a taste of what the local Silicon Valley talent has to offer. The house itself is fairly basic, but has all the things you need to live and work, including quiet areas and common areas that have lively discussion. The main complaint I have is that the mattresses on the beds were quite thin and uncomfortable for me, I don't know that I'd be able to last a long time sleeping on them. Other than that, definitely a great experience!

It's an amazing place, with all the awesomeness of a Hackerspace. Katy will provide a box for bathroom items, clean sheets and blankets upon arrival, and ask about what kind of sleeper you are. The rules are simple and make everybody happy. You will find amazing and friendly people doing all sorts of interesting things.

It was great. Kate is the best host. And the people in the hostel was very nice too. The hostel is also near the Caltrain Station.

Katy Of Radio Eden User Profile

We are Radio Eden and Alliance Dvaraka, two happy independent dormitories. Each provide flexible communal living, particularly for short term residents like interns, exchange students, consultants, etc.

Our RAs based at Radio Eden (Mountain View) are Katy, Eric, and Derrick.
Srikanth is the RA for Dvaraka (Palo Alto), though he often gets backup from the Radio Eden RAs.

Katy is the house head of Radio Eden. She is a former NASA roboticist, Xoogler, and a jack of all trades. She helped run Hacker Dojo during its more community-centrered phase. Eden is the 9th communal house she has helped run. She likes video games, PJs, and her husband named Cliff who is not part of the company but also lives on campus. Cliff is a graphics programmer at an independent game studio. He likes the 80's, things which go "boom," and Jeeps.

Eric is an RA based at Radio Eden. He is a physicist, mathematician and former grad student. Eric moved in to Stonehenge in March 2015 to finish a paper he wished to write independently outside of grad school. He helps with strategy, logistics, and focusing on what is highest impact to the resident's happiness and the dorm's overall health. He likes philosophy, movies, books of every kind, and being right.

Derrick is an RA based at Radio Eden, but currently at Alliance Dvaraka to finish Srikanth's training. Derrick started as an economist but since then has spent a lot of time studying math, languages, literature, programming, machine learning and playing Marth in SSBM. He has been intermittently with the crew since 2013, and now focuses on logistics. He likes anime, ironing, neoclassical music, and extremely specific lightbulbs.

Srikanth is the house head for Alliance Dvaraka. He is a physicist turned programmer who now works in international immigration. Srikanth met the group because he went to college with Eric. He likes meeting people, art, EDM, board games, Burning Man, and generally being an extrovert.

Taiyo 社長 (pronounced Taiyo Shachō) (English: President Taiyo) is the landlord's cat who lives with us. He is huge, grey, and while he often does visit with the residents outdoors, the only indoor place he is permitted is the RA's unit as many residents have allergies. When not overseeing the company and our guests, he studies ornithology and applied optics. Eric also keeps a golden knee tarantula named Dash in a tightly-closed container. Dash was a surprise gift from his brother, makes Eric incredibly happy, and is never permitted outside of the RA's unit.

Shared hobbies of all the RAs include Super Smash Brothers Melee, casual philosophy podcasts, media from different time periods, trying to be decent programmers, anime and cooking, though we each have individual tastes.
